The infamous Kim Kardashian sex tape was ‘released like an album’ by Kim herself who kept the only copy of it stashed in a Nike shoebox under her bed along with the rest of the steamy tapes she made with Ray J, DailyMail.com has learned.
Speaking for the first time about the tape in a bombshell interview with DailyMail.com, Ray J said he had never possessed a copy of any of the tapes they made together, only holding on to photos and texts Kim sent him between 2002 and 2009.
He also insists he never did any of the things she claims he did in the Kardashians’ new Hulu show and was outraged by her suggestion he might have a video showing him ‘sticking a dildo in my a**’ – which he says made him sound ‘like a rapist’ and was untrue.
And in a private text message to Ray J, seen below, Kim admits: ‘If you’re upset about the dildo comment it was clearly a sarcastic joke and I was laughing when I said it.’
‘I have never leaked a sex tape in my life. It’s always been a deal and a partnership between Kris Jenner and Kim and me and we’ve always been partners since the beginning of this thing,’ Ray J told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview
Ray J and Kim made the sex tape in Cabo, Mexico, when they were both 21, It wasn’t released for five years when their relationship was almost at an end
Kim cried uncontrollably when she supposedly received the sex tape from Kanye West. But Ray J insists they are crocodile tears as she had the tapes in a box under her bed all the time
Ray J – real name Ray Norwood – told DailyMail.com: ‘I’ve sat in the shadows for over 14 years allowing the Kardashians to use my name, to abuse my name, make billions of dollars over a decade-and-a-half talking about a topic I’ve never really spoken about.’I’ve never leaked anything. I have never leaked a sex tape in my life. It has never been a leak. It’s always been a deal and a partnership between Kris Jenner and Kim and me and we’ve always been partners since the beginning of this thing.’The former couple, who got together in 2002 when both were 21, made the infamous tape during her birthday celebrations that year. It was released in 2007.Ray J, now 41, told DailyMail.com putting out the video was his idea and he suggested it to Kim after they saw how Paris Hilton’s profile was boosted when the film she made with poker player Rick Saloman was leaked.
The 2007 release of Kim Kardashian Superstar was an international sensation, raking in an estimated $100 million
But while Kim claims she didn’t want to do it, Ray J says the now 41-year-old embraced the idea and enlisted her mother Kris Jenner to organize its release via Vivid Entertainment – a process he had little to do with.
Only one tape – the video shot in Cabo – was ever released and dad-of-two Ray J told DailyMail.com that all of the intimate tapes were kept at Kim’s house in a shoe box under her bed.
He said: It was something we did in Cabo on a trip for her birthday and it was something extra we were doing in the hotel.
‘She kept them all – she had to go find that tape [Sex Tape Cabo #1] and then present it. I never had a tape in my possession in our whole relationship.
‘I never had a single one at my house – she had them at her house. She’s always had all the tapes in a Nike shoe box under her bed.
‘I’m sure she has bigger beds now and better boxes. That’s how it all came about. Once I pitched the idea to her, just playing around a little bit, that’s when she jumped on the idea, talked to her mom and it was out of my hands from there.’
Neither Kim nor Kris, 66, responded to DailyMail.com calls for comment.
Ray J now regrets his role in releasing the tape after he was publicly blamed for leaking it but has been unable to correct the record due to the contract that he had signed without legal advice.
The Love and Hip Hop star says the tape and his role as the villain of the piece has blighted his career and relationships – and even left him feeling suicidal at one stage.
Kim’s rise to superstardom was preceded by Paris Hilton, who originally used her as her stylist. But in time the Kardashian brand far outshone the Hiltons
Kim and Paris were best friends in the early 2000s when Kardashian was dating Ray J
Ray J said the idea of making a sex tape was his after seeing how Paris Hilton’s profile was boosted when the sex film she made with poker player Rick Saloman was leaked
Kim turned up with new beau Pete Davidson on Monday at the Met Gala in New York wearing the dress adorned with 6,000 crystals that Marilyn Monroe had on when she sang Happy Birthday to President John F. Kennedy in 1962
Ray J said: ‘I felt suicidal because when you know something’s real and it’s true and you’re watching a whole family create an empire from a lie they’ve created, it’s heartbreaking and disrespectful to all the entertainers who have been honest and true to their craft.
‘As a black man living and working in America, it’s hard to get up every day and look out at the water or look at my family and know that they think something about you when you know it’s 1,000 per cent the other way. How do you live like that?
‘I couldn’t be a part of any reputable major network television show and do Dancing with the Stars, and do America’s Got Talent or anything like that because of my image.
‘Because of what they made me, I’m not allowed to be in those places.’
Ray J insists that he gave Kanye pictures, not a sex tape
The singer added: ‘For me, I’ve been walking on eggshells thinking I’m going to get in trouble for telling the truth and I’ve been holding onto it for the past 14 years and watching them humiliate me. They’re celebrating my destruction.’
He said he had been forced to live a lie and now wants the truth to come out so he can show people – most importantly his daughter three-year-old daughter Melody – that he’s not ‘a bad guy who exploits and disrespects women’.
Ray J said: ‘Where in this whole story did Ray J become the person who leaked the tape and who’s made their lives miserable?
‘How do you believe that Ray J is the enemy of all enemies when we’ve been partners from the beginning of the sex tape being released up until now? We’re all still making money.
‘But yet you go with defame me and blame me over and over and I can’t do nothing but defend my honor and speak out and tell the truth.
He said the final straw came when the Kardashians made the tape a storyline in their new Hulu show – at one point discussing whether he might have any more material, including a moment when Kim said he might have a video showing him ‘sticking a dildo in my a**’.
In a later episode, her estranged husband Kanye West is seen boasting about collecting a laptop from Ray J and saying his family would no longer be ‘extorted’.
But furious Ray J says the reality was very different: he handed over the device stuffed with intimate photos and ‘mini-videos’ sent to him during their four-year relationship after he heard via Kanye that Kim was worried about what kind of material the laptop might contain.
Despite Kanye’s claims of extortion, Ray J says he did not ask to be paid, did not receive any money and was happy to hand it over to allay Kim’s fears.
“I’ve been walking on eggshells thinking I’m going to get in trouble for telling the truth and I’ve been holding onto it for the past 14 years and watching them humiliate me. They’re celebrating my destruction.”
Instead, he described a four-hour meeting with Kanye at the private terminal at LAX where the pair spoke ‘father to father’ while the Yeezy designer sat on the floor and looked at everything on the laptop which he then took with him when he left.
Kim later claimed on the show the laptop just contained a video of Kim and Ray J eating at a restaurant but Ray J says that is untrue.
He said: ‘It wasn’t a sex tape – it was a lot of pictures, a lot of little mini videos and a lot of proof we’ve been talking over the years [since they split in 2006]. If you send me an email in 2008, the computer doesn’t change the date on it.
‘So, in 07 it happened [Kim got in contact], Kanye could see we were talking consistently in 07, 08, 09 through her sending me texts and videos and stuff.
Ray J says he and Kanye spoke ‘father to father about the sex tape and he agreed to give up everything he had – even though there was nothing damning in his possession
Ray J accused Kim of just playing to the cameras with her tears
Kim’s comment about a sex toy made Ray J ‘look like a rapist and dirty perv,’ he said in texts pleading with Kim to come clean
‘I didn’t say a single bad thing about you,’ Kim insisted
Kim responds by saying she doesn’t want to be defined by something they did 20 years ago
‘I was proving to him, I’ve never been the enemy. I’ve never been the person who they say I am. If that was the case, why are you guys trying to brainstorm, come up with ideas with me and make me do what you guys say do.
‘You want me to continue to act the bad guy and you guys have brainwashed me into thinking that’s OK.’
He says the only copies of any tapes that still exist are with Kim. Ray J said: ‘She knows there’s nothing else. I don’t have a tape to leak. I’ve never leaked a tape. I don’t have a plan to ruin them.
‘When I put on the comments that all of this is a lie, I didn’t mean Kanye coming to meet with me about some second sex tape.
‘I mean all of this is all a lie. From the beginning of us putting this sex tape out, this has been the biggest lie in the industry in the history of entertainment.’
He added: ‘They’re not letting the world know that there’s a bunch of sex tapes that we made but they’re not going anywhere because she has them all.
Kim and Ray J’s sex tape was made at the Esperanza Hotel In Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It was allegedly followed by a second – that has never been published – made in Santa Barbara, California
Kim’s sex tape experience at the Esperanza clearly did not turn her against the place. She returned there in 2020
‘I’ve never had them to watch and to enjoy.’Although Ray J and Kim hadn’t spoken for a decade, he says he contacted her when the new sex tape allegations on the Hulu show came out – begging her via Instagram direct message to stop saying he leaked the tape.In the messages, copies of which have been obtained by DailyMail.com, Kim attempts to smooth things over – suggesting PR strategies ‘to make me feel better’ but does not deny Ray J’s version of events.Ray J said: ‘I felt like this was her only chance to try and make this right. In the texts, I demand her to call me immediately or I’m going to go and tell my story.’So she responds immediately with all of these different plans and ideas that will make me feel better.’At the same time, you’re [Kim] telling the whole world that I’m a horrible person and I haven’t spoken to you and how could I do this to you?’If you look at the DMs, you can see that she’s continuing to try to keep me in a box – only what she can do to make me feel better after they killed my name.’Only because she knows everything I’m saying is true – she never denied on these DMs anything that I’ve told her.’I asked her on the DMs, how do I explain to my daughter this is a lie. If you’re worried about your family, what about my family?”If they didn’t come back and show how they really were, how greedy and slimy they really were, I would never have had the enthusiasm or the will to go out and speak my truth.’Ray J and Kim were frequently seen at Hollywood events during their romance which started in 2002. Here the are pictured at Library Bar in 2006
On the Hulu show, The Kardashians, Kim’s estranged husband Kanye West was said to have gone to Los Angeles to get back the sex tape from Ray J
Ray J says he is expecting repercussions for speaking out but says he feels relieved to have finally given his side of the story.He said: ‘Now that I’m a father, it kills my soul to think my daughter would have to go through life thinking her dad was something that he wasn’t.’You can’t give me any money. You can’t pay me for my life back. You can’t pay me for honesty and truth.’You can’t pay me any money or apologize to me for any of that. You have to be honest with yourself at this point. I don’t need an apology – I have proof.’I just want my daughter and my son to appreciate what I’ve done here on Earth and know that their dad doesn’t go for exploiting women, disrespecting women and leaking footage of someone who didn’t give permission.’Ray J added: ‘This has been a burden for me. It’s been an embarrassment for me. My family have questioned my integrity, who I am as a person.’Up until now, even some of the people I’m close to – when I tell them what I’m going through, it’s really hard for them to believe, with all the things they’ve [the Kardashians] done and said about me over the years.’I can’t live the rest of my life in this lie. This morning, I woke up and said, you know what? For the remainder of my life, I’m going to live in my truth and not in the lie that’s been created by Kris Jenner and Kim.
‘I will not let them do this to me anymore.’
Fed Up And Desperate South Africans Are Looking To Other Countries In Search Of Better Opportunities
Fed up and desperate South Africans are looking to other countries in search of better opportunities, but high net worth foreigners are flocking here for a better quality of life.
Rampant crime, corruption and, to a lesser extent the country’s ongoing electricity woes, are listed as some of the reasons why South Africans are heading for the exit. The Covid-19 pandemic is also no longer a deterrent to travelling.
Top of the lost-skills list are doctors, accountants, IT specialists and even media professionals who are looking for greener pastures, mainly in English language countries.
Results of a survey released by infoQuest/TrendER this week indicated that 5% of employed South Africans had applied for residency in another country and would be emigrating soon.
Another 14% had seriously considered emigrating and had made enquiries or submitted applications.
The organisation said a further one in three employed South Africans had thought about emigrating but had not taken any further steps.
“If we extrapolate this to the actual numbers, 5% of about 15 million working South Africans indicates a staggering number of 750 000 South Africans getting ready to leave imminently,” said Claire Heckrath, managing director of infoQuest.
Experts say New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the UK are perennial favourites for those seeking a better life outside the country, but Portugal and Panama are growing in popularity and have been added to the list.
On the flip side, new SA residents, mainly from Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and the UK, view South Africa as their playground because of its natural beauty, open spaces and larger living areas.
But there’s a caveat: you have to be affluent to get around the loadshedding, crime, health and education troubles you will encounter in your new home.
Property and immigration experts say Hermanus is the place of choice for foreigners who relocate to South Africa, while Cape Town and Plettenberg Bay come a close second.
Tax and immigration experts say the favourable exchange rate for people from Europe means they get more value for money when they buy property here than they would get in their own countries.
The beauty of the whales in Hermanus, its proximity to Cape Town and the top notch infrastructure in the area are all selling points, says Annien Borg, an area manager for Pam Golding estate agency.
Borg said foreigners were willing to fork out R50m for a lavish house or even R22m for a vacant plot in the seaside town.
South Africans in new countries say it’s the safety, good education and hope for better opportunities that saw them take the plunge.
However, it’s not necessarily easier for everyone: some have to work even harder than before, and take on two jobs to maintain the standard of living they had back home.
Sable International migration manager Sarah Young said she had assisted 300 families to relocate to Portugal through that country’s golden visa investment programme.
She said the volatility of the rand, safety and security and high unemployment rates are what spurred on her clients to make the move.
Young said other countries like Malta, Ireland and Grenada were also becoming popular.
Biokineticist Michelle das Neves moved to Portugal at the start of this year, just after getting married, citing crime, feeling unsafe, the breakdown of facilities, racism and the growing inequality as reasons she and her husband left.
While she ran a successful practice with more than one consulting room in SA, she now splits her time between her medical profession and selling houses.
Despite doing well as an estate agent and being acknowledged as “rookie of the quarter”, she says wearing two hats was tiring but worth it.
“I’m very happy that the lights stay on and the water stays on and that I can walk in the street and I don’t have to be paranoid about my bag in my car,” said Das Neves.
She said while there was crime, it wasn’t violent crime that South Africans were exposed to all the time.
Tax attorney Madeleine Schubart from Boshoff Inc said Portugal was popular among South Africans of retirement age because they were only subjected to a 10% tax in that country. In addition it was only high net worth individuals who were considering that as a new place to settle.
She said the cost of living was favourable in Portugal while those going to Panama saw it as a foot in the door to getting their children educated in the US.
She said a substantial number of farmers had also left SA and gone to the US where they became farm managers, while the UK was usually favoured by engineers and young professionals.
“South Africa doesn’t always have the next step available for the very ambitious,” she said.
Andrew Kerr, a director at Network Migration, said currently New Zealand was the most popular destination among his clients.
Over 25 years he has helped 12 000 families emigrate from South Africa to New Zealand or Australia. He said NZ was their number one destination and had been for the last 10 years, and was popular among all age groups, from 21 to 55, regardless of ethnicity or education.
He said the reasons for leaving were mostly for the future of their children, but also high unemployment, crime and Eskom.
Kerr said it took two to five years to get back to the standard of living you had achieved before leaving SA and that it took three to six months to immigrate to New Zealand and 12 to 18 months for Australia.
Durban businesswoman Samanthra Pillay, her husband Sugan and their two daughters sold their business a few months ago and their home on Sunday and will head to New Zealand in November.
Pillay said they wanted better opportunities and education for their children and the best way for them to get into New Zealand was for her to apply to do a PhD in law. Once there, her husband would get a work visa and eventually they hoped for citizenship.
Johannesburg couple Jackie and Jacques Roodt and their two daughters are scheduled to fly to New Zealand on October 12.
Roodt, who is in the IT field, already has a job there, while they managed to secure a place to live and a school for their children so they could hit the ground running.
Tax specialist Jeremy Burman said the imposition of a possible wealth tax was not a major reason for emigration.
He said South Africa already had several taxes which could be regarded as forms of wealth tax like capital gains tax, transfer duty, estate duty and donations tax.
Burman urged possible emigrants to get the proper financial and tax advice before leaving the country so that they could plan.
He said there were many misconceptions around exit tax in particular which he described as “almost a last bite” for SARS to get a cut out of your assets before leaving for good.

Three Sisters Who Have Strict Parents Get Impregnated By Their Gardener
A gardener has successfully impregnated three sisters at the same time.
These three sisters were unable to explore the outside world due to the strict parents they have who virtually controlled every aspect of their lives.
In a bid to explore their sex lives, these three Kenyan sisters had to rely on the poor gardener who always came around to work.
It was learned that the only close friend they had was the gardener who routinely visits to tend the flowers in their home.
Their once-close friendship had developed into a romantic bond, and the gardener began having private encounters with the sisters without the knowledge of their strict parents.
It was discovered that this continued for a while before the ladies all caught on, surprising their devout Christian parents.
According to rumours going around, the gardener had only been intimate with the secondborn up until the firstborn discovered them and requested that the same treatment be given to her in order to purchase her silence.
The last born was also involved in the tryst, but it’s unclear how she found out.
“I’m Grateful” : Thoughtful American Mum Pregnant With Son’s 5th Baby At 56
A mother has revealed she is pregnant with her own son’s baby after he and his wife struggled to conceive for years.
Nancy Hauck, a 56-year-old mum-of-five and administrator from St George, Utah, decided to be a surrogate for her 32-year-old son Jeff and his wife Cambria, 30, as her daughter-in-law was unable to carry more children after undergoing a hysterectomy.
Knowing Jeff loved being a father and wanted to grow his brood, Nancy tentatively volunteered to carry a child for the couple, but had concerns it wouldn’t be possible due to her age.
However, the embryo successfully transferred earlier this year, with Nancy due to give birth to her grandchild in November.
“I never imagined I would be pregnant at 56 or that this would be possible, but it is the most beautiful thing,” Nancy told the British news agency South West News Service (SWNS), as quoted by the Daily Mail.
Jeff and Cambria had long struggled with fertility issues, undergoing IVF treatment for six years before falling pregnant their now-three-year-old twins, Vera and Ayva. Not long after, the couple conceived another set of twins, 11-month-old Diseal and Luka.
However, the traumatic birth meant Cambria was required to undergo a hysterectomy, an invasive procedure that surgically removes a woman’s uterus. The procedure may also involve the removal of the cervix, ovaries and fallopian tubes, meaning the woman will no longer be able to get pregnant. As per Health Navigator, hysterectomies are often carried out to treat conditions that affect the female reproductive system, including bleeding problems, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, prolapse or cancer.
Despite being unable to carry more children, the couple had remaining frozen embryos they were hoping could be implanted into a surrogate – and Nancy decided to volunteer.
“I just had a feeling a few months after that I should offer to do it,” she said.
“I told my son, and he teared up and was shocked – I hadn’t even told my husband at that point, but he was really supportive.
“I feel very powerful carrying my son’s daughter… I think this is quite a rare thing to do. I never planned for it, but I am so glad I chose to carry my son’s baby.”
Surrogacy is when a woman carries a baby for a couple who are unable to conceive or carry a child themselves. Such couples may include those who have suffered recurrent miscarriages, repeated IVF failures, premature menopause or a hysterectomy.
Straight surrogacy involves using the surrogate’s egg and the intended father’s sperm; the least expensive and simplest form of the procedure. Host surrogacy, which is the case for the Hauck family, requires IVF with either the intended mother’s eggs or donor eggs, rather than those of the surrogate. In this case, the surrogate is typically unrelated to the baby, and donor eggs can be from friends or relatives, or anonymously donated.
After approaching fertility experts with their proposal, doctors had concerns about Nancy’s age; however, an exam found she could still be a viable carrier for the couple as long as they acted before she entered menopause.
“I left the choice up to Jeff and Cambria. They’d just had their twins, so it was very quick after to have another baby. But they decided to go for it.”
Nancy began hormone treatment in January 2022, injecting herself daily for 12 weeks with the help of her husband and Jeff’s father, Jason. The fertilised embryo was transferred into her uterus a month later – and 26 years after Nancy’s last pregnancy.
Speaking to the news service, Jeff said his mother’s selfless act has left him in awe of her “kindness, love, strength, attitude, wisdom, and dedication”.
“She is sacrificing so much for us, and our family and we just feel so grateful. It has been so miraculous and beautiful,” Cambria added, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
In May, the family discovered they were expecting a baby girl, who is due to be born on November 5.
“There is no repayment for something like that – all I can do is follow the example my parents have set and try to give that same level of love and devotion to my own family and to others,” Jeff concluded.
